It is a 3 star location because there is sewage leaking into the water directly in front of the hotel. That did not want me to run out into the water. The price is right and the owners of the condo are great. I love the no smoking policy. It is great for families. It is a run down beach... More

This was our 3rd visit to the Panhandle previously we had stayed in Destin and we l loved it, but decided to try PCB. We loved the location close to food, grocery stores and shops. The views are amazing pictures just don't do the view justice. We booked through a private owner and had a much smoother time than others... More

Steps away from the white sandy beaches was unbelievable. We had a 3 bedroom which comfortably handle 10 people. The condo had all the amenities. The building itself had everything you could ask for. A short walk to the board walk and shopping district. Pier Park was a great place to hang out, eat, shop, etc..A 30 minute drive to... More

Very clean and spacious! Great beach, although chair service seemed a little high. We were really disappointed in the service at the pool bar. Not much knowledge of drink selection and took forever to get food. Other than that, we enjoyed our condo, beach and location very much and will visit again.

My family and I stayed here with my husband's brother and his family. In all, there were four adults and four children. We had a terrific time. Other than the elevators being a nightmare during check-in and checkout, we really enjoyed ourselves. We were fortunate to be on the 5th floor, so we took the stairs a lot. Our first... More

Our family visited the Tidewater in Aug. 2015. We were so excited to arrive there from Arkansas that we pulled up around 8 or 9 a.m. To our sadness, it was dark in the lobby with noone to assist us with signing in. We didn't expect our room to be ready. Our room was not available until 430-500 p.m. By... More

My apartment was a little updated and was not to clean. The balcony was very dirty. The handled of the fridge was dirty. I'm not sure I would come back. There are much better places around here. I didn't have problems with the elevators. Great view.

Husband and I came to look for condo for possible purchase. Condo 902 was good size but dirty and and very worn. Tidewater was nice complex but parking was across the street. Good bar and grill and nice pool. Close to pier park. Liked Seychelles and sterling reef. Awesome views. Love the beaches!!!
